The State of California is looking for land in San Diego to build a migrant processing center.
It’s asking farmers for vacant agricultural land to be used for “tent cities.”
Currently Texas is feeling the brunt of a surge in illegal immigration at the border between the U-S and Mexico that started when President Joe Biden took office.
The tents would provide resources, Covid-19 testing and Covid-19 vaccinations for migrants crossing the border into the United States.
Currently The Fairplex in Pomona and the Long Beach and San Diego Convention Centers are being used as processing centers for thousands of people coming into the country illegally.
The San Diego Convention Center is currently housing more than 14-hundred migrant children, most of whom are abandoned at the border by the families. Some are tossed over a tall fence at the border, landing on American soil.
